Sunflower seed oil is a great source of vitamin E, rich in nutrients and antioxidants, and is effective for combatting skincare issues like acne, inflammation, general redness and irritation of the skin.
Sunflower oil has emollient properties that help the skin retain its moisture. Vitamin E helps trap moisture inside skin cells, keeping the skin hydrated for a longer period. It also helps protect skin cells from harmful UV rays from the sun and other environmental stressors.
The antioxidant properties of sunflower oil help in preventing premature signs of aging, as it helps protect the skin from exposure to sunlight. The vitamin E in sunflower seed oil can help protect the collagen and elastin in the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in your face.
Aloe Vera is full of amino acids, enzymes, and minerals like calcium and magnesium that contribute to youthful, vibrant skin.
As a moisturizer, it penetrates the skin deeply. As Aloe Vera is hydrating but not greasy, it is perfect for people with oily or sensitive skin.
Aloe’s moisturizing & emollient qualities create a natural barrier to protect your skin without weighing you down.
The naturally rejuvenating qualities of Aloe Vera are also potent allies in the battle against the effects of aging. Studies have shown that Aloe reduces the presence of wrinkles, improves skin elasticity to prevent sagging and increases collagen production to promote a plump & glowing complexion.
In Ayurveda, it is commonly known that Neem is an incredibly effective acne combatant and is often associated with naturally beautiful and glowing skin.
During the monsoonal season, the sebaceous glands that are responsible for producing body oils and regulating perspiration, go into overdrive due to the increased humidity. This can lead to breakouts and oily skin.
The anti-bacterial properties of Neem have a positive impact on any pimples, blackheads & whiteheads. In addition, the harmful effects of bacteria that cause these breakouts are nullified by the anti-inflammatory properties of Neem.
Neem can also cure skin issues like rashes, irritations, burns and infections.

Take a sufficient amount of oil into the palm of your hand. Rub your hands together to spread the oil. You’ll be applying the oil mainly with your fingertips, so focus on spreading it there. Using your fingertips, work the oils into your scalp. Use a massaging motion to both work the oil in and stimulate the scalp. Make sure you cover the entire scalp area, including the back of your head, just above the neck, and behind your ears.
Section your hair into 2 parts. Split it right down the middle of your scalp. If you have long hair, pull one section over your left shoulder and the other over your right shoulder. This will make it easier to apply the oil to the shafts of your hair.
Treat the length of your hair. If you have long hair, you might be tempted to pour a large amount of oil into your hands. However, this will always result in a dripping mess. No matter how much hair you’re working with, take about half a teaspoon of oil into your palm at a time, adding more oil when you need it. Run your hands through the length of your hair, starting at your scalp and ending at the ends. If your ends feel dry, add more oil until they look shiny. Don’t neglect the hair on the back of your head too.
